Diving - Ginger Steps

Responsive image

DEPTH: 35-100 feet (11-30 M)


Ginger Steps is composed of a series of huge ledges cascading down from the shallows to 100 feet. The visibility here is normally very good. Beautiful tube sponges and sea fans grace the leading edges of the tops of the ledges. Below, look for squirrelfishes, small grunts and damselfishes. The sand between the drop-offs is so brilliantly white that the whole site seems to glow. Down deeper, schools of pale snapper and grunts congregate in the hollows between the corals. Barracudas and juvenile angelfishes loiter around the tiny coral heads scattered in the sand beneath the mooring.
